An Introduction to the Modeling of Semiconductor Processes
Semiconductor manufacturing processes involve interplay between phenomena from centimeter down to atomic scales. This situation presents many opportunities for contributions to be made by mathematical modeling and numerical simulation. This talk will be an introduction to some of the relevant processes and how they are, or might be, modeled. It will present how multiscale analysis, stochastic processes, and other mathematical methods could be applied. No prior knowledge of any of these fields or methods will be presumed. It is hoped that this talk will serve as an introduction to other talks to be presented this term.
Brown bag lunches are appropriate.
